Well hello and welcome! Time for some hot vape VLOG DAY action. After some pondering and meditation i’ve decided we are flipping the script a little bit. Weeding out boring stuff, adding in cooler stuff, and overall making the VLOG better and more fun for everyone.

We will be going through many of the VLOG segments tonight including beer, mail, retro vapings, liquid tastings, GTKGG, some news, some advocacy.

Welcome back to TBN. Vape industry news, advocacy, and information. Today’s Topics Include: The FDA Decided to make examples of 3 very small vapor companies this last week by rejecting 55K of their PMTA applications. Were going to dig into why, and what this means for the future of the vaping market in the USA. We also have some sciencey stuff and a NEW Iqos product launching in Japan.

Be Informed, Trust Science, Defend Vaping

As I said in the video, at the end of the day, the YachtVape Eclipse RTA (by MikeVapes) is just a single coil RTA. It’s not going to do anything leaps and bounds better than some other single-coil RTAs. The flavor is on point and I overall love the style of this thing. Druga RTA, yeah it’s kinda like that, it’s also in the same family as the GEAR RTA. Slammed down flavor bangers.

My only gripe is the hollow airflow, but even that isn’t enough to keep me away from this RTA.

I really think this Uwell Aeglos H2 mod pod is a sleeper. It’s a real nice performer for not a whole lot of money. The MTL kinda sucks, but as a restricted lung, it’s very nice. The 0.18 coils at 42 – 44 whats is a really enjoyable vape IMO.

New vapers for sure, veteran vapers maybe if you’re looking for something in this category. You want something a little lighter weight, a little more “corporate” feeling? The Aeglos H2 mod pod could be what you need to quit cigarettes.

After a solid 5 year streak of safety here at GrimmGreen Industries, we had an OSHA recordable accident last week. An employee was being careless and not observing proper lock out / tag out procedures and was burnt on 3 digits on his right hand. This employee was written up and put on a first-level notification with mandatory battery safety classes with Battery Mooch every other week.

We take safety very seriously here at GrimmGreen Industries and look forward to a bright and safe future for all our valued employees.

I know, understand and appreciate the controversy behind this RTA. With that said, the controversy ain’t my controversy and I really like this thing. The HAAR RTA is fiddly yes, intricate yes, but honestly easier thank ya think and ultimately a really stellar restricted lung IMO.

Apart from what I said in the video, I wanted to mention that this HAAR RTA does also suffer from the “COIL TURD” syndrome as I call it. An RDA for Vaping always has little speckles of liquid around the afc area, this RTA kinda does the same thing. With so many seams and parts connecting on the exterior, tiny surprise liquid drops are inevitable. Still worth it for the vape IMO. Dig this HAAR RTA, dig this HAAR RTA quite a bit.

At the end of the day, the Palace S mod pod is fine. The lung / restricted lung is actually pretty good, and the rest of it is fine. It’s not the first thing I would suggest to a smoker, but if a smoker bought one, it would probably be fine. Likewise for vapers, in a pinch this is fine.

If it’s between this and a Whirl … I might still pick the Whirl just because I like the coil heads. But the Palace S is still fine.

Last recap: OG Caliburn good. OG KOKO good. Caliburn-G meh. KOKO-Prime meh. Caliburn A2 GOOD!! KOKO A2 GOOD!! I feel pretty confident in my time with these coil heads. Happy to report they are really great. I like them more than the G coil heads and I like them MUCH more than the Yearn Neat 2 coil heads. This Caliburn A2 feels like a throwback to the first one, and I like that a lot.

Best Caliburn so far. Which will probably be beaten by the 2022 Caliburn / KoKo series. The KoKo has a lanyard thing too if you dig those, it works great.

Considerable evidence suggests that e-cigarettes are an effective smoking-cessation tool for adults in the United States, where hundreds of thousands of people die of smoking-related illness each year.

Kenneth Warner, dean emeritus and the Avedis Donabedian Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health, says, however, that the potential of vaping to increase smoking cessation has been largely overshadowed by media coverage and policies that focus on the potential risk vaping represents for teens.
